I work in a hospital, it is called the Taiwan Adventist Hospital; it is a big combined hospital
which is located in the capital city of Taipei and provides all kinds of services to residents 24
hours a day. Taiwan Adventist Hospital is run by an American church. There are two purposes
why they built this hospital in our country; one is to improve peoples health; the other thing is to
do missionary work. In addition, it has been voted as one of the most popular hospitals in
the Hospital Management magazine for the past 2 years; this is a good hospital for everyone
who has the need to go here. I love this hospital!

The hospital is near my house; I usually take the bus to go the hospital every morning. This
hospital is located in the center of the city. People like it a lot. It doesnt look like a hospital;
maybe you can say it is like a hotel! The chief of our hospital wants patients staying here to feel
like they are living in their homes. Outdoors they designed a beautiful garden and exercise
park; everyone can go to there to relax themselves.

Our hospital is made up of 3 buildings. It is bright yellow, it makes it especially eyecatching.


The first and second floors are clinics. In the basement there is the restaurant; you can eat a
very delicious vegetarian diet in our hospital. The top floor has many offices for all
administrators. In addition, the hospital has 22 departments, 360 ward beds, 756 staff
members, and about 30 volunteers. They are assigned to every department. If you have any
questions, they can help you as soon as possible. All the workers are very kind to help patients
and families, including doctors, nurses, and administrators. They do their best in their jobs
every day. They take care of patients health and teach them important things about their
problems. Sometimes they use the Bible and hymns to relieve patients pain. We let them know
they are not lonely. The co-workers will keep to help them until they recover.

This is the best hospital that I have ever been a part of. There are so many advantages in this
hospital; they treat patients' diseases and take care of their mental problems. Here we are like
a big family; all the members are like brothers and sisters; they always help each other. Im very
glad I work in this good environment. After I finish studying in U.S., I hope I can come back to
our hospital and devote my knowledge to all of the patients.

following the publication of her diary. She wrote about her life, thoughts and experiences of
hiding from the Nazis in World War II. Anne Frank was born in 1929 in Germany. She moved to
Amsterdam with her family after Adolf Hitler came to power in 1933. She attended a Montessori
school and was a very energetic and outgoing girl. In June 1942, Anne received a notebook for
her thirteenth birthday. She decided to use it as a diary, here are some notes about her daily
routine:

Usually, some people get up around 6:45 AM, followed by the others. Between 8:30 and 9:00
AM the people in hiding must not make a single sound, because then the warehousemen start
arriving. The office employees, the helpers, are still not in at this hour. Their workday begins at
9:00 AM. That is when the people in hiding go upstairs to eat breakfast Around 12:30 PM
the warehousemen go home and the people in hiding can breathe a momentary sigh of relief.
The midday meal is prepared and at 1:00 PM the people in hiding listen to the BBC news from
London. At 1:15 lunch is ready. Bep Voskuijl often eats with them. Once in a while, Miep
Gies also comes during lunch. Everybody returns to work at 1:45 PM. The dishes are washed
and then it is time for an afternoon nap. Anne doesnt sleep, instead she uses this time to write
in her diary At 5:30 PM, nightly freedom - as Anne calls this in her diary . The other
employees of Opekta have gone home by then. Bep asks if there are any other groceries
needed and then comes home by herself at 5:45. The people sit in the office space downstairs,
until Auguste van Pels and Edith Frank announce that dinner is served. At around 9:00 PM,
the beds are ready for that night. After 10:00 PM, it is peaceful in the Secret Annex, but the
people in hiding often have trouble falling asleep. Especially when there are shots being fired at
Allied airplanes

tiempo para escribir en su diario "A las 5:30 PM, la libertad nocturna" - como
Anne lo llama en su diario. Los otros empleados de Opekta se han ido a casa
para entonces. Bep pregunta si hay otras provisiones necesarias y luego
regresa a casa a las 5:45. La gente se sienta en el espacio de la oficina de
